Guests were left speechless to witness Gupta seated with his wife smiling as the couple was flanked by their two daughters.
An industrialist, from Karnataka, India, did not want to celebrate the house warming ceremony without his beloved wife who had died three years ago in a road accident.
Shrinivas Gupta installed a startlingly life-size silicone statue of his deceased wife, Madhavi, as it was her dream home and the family could not think of moving in without her.
According to reports in NDTV, guests were left speechless to witness Gupta seated with his wife smiling in a pink silk saree as the couple was flanked by their two daughters.
“It is a great feeling to have my wife again at my home; this was her dream home. The house was designed as per her wishes and she alone was monitoring the progress of the construction of the house,” Gupta said.
Adding that he and his daughters miss her terribly, the industrialist said, “Artist Shreedhar Murthy from Bengaluru took a year to make the statue. Silicone was used instead of wax for durability.”
